Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable!
With support and some dedication and through an open and balance Forum for discussion and suggestion it may just possibly provide the vehicle these United Kingdoms so clearly need!
Already it is clearly not just crano rectally retentive theorists nor self serving parasites seeking self enrichment – unlike the various political parties!
if you are truelly a EUroRealist or even merely a EUroSceptic you may find this interesting:
Nikki Sinclaire travelled to Israel and Palestine earlier this month for a series of meetings with senior politicians and NGOs active in the field of human rights.
She was able to observe at first hand conditions in the besieged city of Gaza, before travalling to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and other senior figures. She also met with Israeli parliamentarians in the Knesset.
Ms Sinclaire is becoming increasingly active in this area, she was one of the first western politicians invited to meet with the interim government of Tunisia following the overthrow of dictatorial President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali at the beginning of 2011
Interesting to note this was gleaned from a nascent site which looks as if it holds some promise for true EUroRealists.
It is good to see Tony Schofield looking as if he will be taking an active and VISIBLE role in the new venture bringing his knowledge, commitment and publishing experience to bear. Let us hope his thoughts and publications will become ‘usably’ available on the web site as he has written several excellent pamphlets and essays on EUroRealism and EUroScepticism over the years.
Then we have Gary Cartwright who is currently an EU employee of the non alligned group in Brussels where I understand he is currently assigned to Nikki Sinclaire as a researcher and assistant – his alternative values and diverse interests may well act as a foil to hone the main thrust of the new group.
Similarly Josh O’Nyons with his experience as an assistant to an MEP both in and out of the EU parliamentary milieu combined with his grass roorts experience across The UK campaigning for the the cross party petition which was devised, founded and led by Nikki Sinclaire with such success that she and her staff and supporters obtained 100,000 signatures and a debate in The House of Commons on an In/Out EU Referendum.
It was interesting to note that Trevor Colman and the ex deputy leader of UKIP Mike Nattrass lent their support latterly and even Nigel Farage praised the efforts of Nikki Sinclaire AFTER the event!
Let us hope this new group moves from strength to strength providing the much needed vision and strategies required as The EU continues to be exposed for the evil that it clearly is. They may even consider working on an exit and survival plan for these United Kingdoms as we move inexorably towards leaving The EU rather than the puerile concept that all that is needed is the repeal of The EUropean Communities Act!
The new group may provide the intellectual rigor and enthusiasm for facts and details that have been conspicuous by their absence in self serving minor parties like UKIP and The BNP.
Although a committed Eurosceptic, Gary Cartwright has extensive experience of working in the EU institutions.
He has a particular interest in east-west relations, and specifically the geopolitical implications of energy supply. As an accredited journalist and author, he has written extensively on this subject.
Contact Gary Cartwright.Josh O’Nyons is a political campaigner, an ardent Conservative and committed eurosceptic. As a Political advisor to a Member of European Parliament he is well aware of EU meddling and interference in ordinary people’s lives. Having witnessed examples of small business wrapped up in red tape and constantly lobbied for help in blocking EU regulation, Josh has had firsthand experience of the detrimental impact EU membership has had on Britain.He became and still is the National Campaign and Grassroots Coordinator for the Campaign for a Referendum in August 2010 responsible for coordinating the work of their activists across the country.The group which cemented itself as the most successful Eurosceptic direct action group within the UK, successfully collected the 100,000 signatures to trigger the famous EU referendum debate in the House of Commons on the 24th October 2011. Where the UK government suffered their biggest rebellion since taking office, the Campaign continues to pressure the UK Government for an ”in or out” referemdum. Within his home town Josh is a member of the Solihull Ratepayers Association which locally campaigns for lower taxes, holds the council to account and criticises all examples of wasteful and unnecessary spending. Outside of politics Josh is involved in period property renovation.

A graduate in law (University of Canterbury), she has gained extensive experience in politics in the UK, the USA, and in Europe. An advocate of universal human rights and a supporter of democratisation, in 2011 she was one of the first western politicians to be invited to meet with the transitional government of Tunisia, following the overthrow of the authoritarian regime of President Ben Ali. during the so-called Arab spring.
More recently she rocked the British government by presenting to 10 Downing Street a petition of over 100,000 signatures calling for a referendum on Britain’s continued membership of the EU. This triggered a debate in the House of Commons that resulted in a major rebellion within the government ranks.

I wish the new grouping good luck and hope they are not attacked too early by those who have made a career out of EUroScepticism and see their incomes as threatened!
